DepEd expects all-F2F classrooms to be full by November: PBBM
President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. stated on Tuesday that Vice President and Secretary of Education Sara Duterte intends to start offering full-fledged in-person classes by November.
He claimed that Duterte revealed her strategy during their first executive meeting during a press conference.
“Inday Sara’s announcement that we have a plan for full face-to-face classes by November was the first example of that,” he said. “This year, September, we will start a phased face-to-face schooling and with that, face-to-face will end up, in early November, as already 100 percent attendance ng mga bata (of the children).
To counter the growing threat posed by less dangerous but more contagious Omicron strains, Marcos stated that they will promote booster vaccination, particularly among young people.
The Department of Health (DOH) approved the booster doses for children aged 12 to 17 on Tuesday.
The nation’s students will not be required to receive the Covid-19 immunization, according to former education secretary Leonor Briones.
Briones also made it clear that schools must adhere to DOH regulations in order to be eligible for in-person instruction.
These include the OK from the local government unit, parental approval, and DOH health assessment.
Nearly 38,000 schools across the country had been selected as face-to-face learning sites as of mid-June.
